Created three years ago, the FIA Formula E championship has been dominated by the French Renault e.dams squad, with the team being crowned FIA Formula E champions for a third consecutive season.
During the first two seasons, Renault e.dams embraced the challenge of the Formula E championship from the outset, by winning the teams’ title on two consecutive occasions. Sébastien Buemi missed the drivers’ crown by only one point in the first season, but fought back even stronger in the second year and was crowned champion after a thrilling season finale in London.
This year, Renault e.dams managed yet again, to win the title thanks to a stunning level of consistency with six victories out of twelve races. They are the only team to have scored points in each race; accumulating a total of 268 points to take their third crown.
“I would like to congratulate Jean-Eric Vergne for his first victory in Formula E, as well as the other drivers, and also Lucas Di Grassi on winning the drivers’ championship,” explained Alain Prost, co-owner of the team. “We thought we could win both titles today but it was not possible. The championship is getting more and more competitive at the highest level. We are very happy to win the teams’ championship for a third consecutive year. The show this weekend was amazing, we raced on one of the bes tracks of the season. Everybody was so happy to be there. I would like to thank our partners for their support, in particular Renault. We will be back next year, for more success hopefully.”
“When Renault entered Formula E in the beginning, it was always to win and to innovate,” added Jérôme Stoll, president of Renault Sport Racing. “To win three titles in three seasons, is incredible. I would like to congratulate the whole team for their hard work over the season. Every year, the level gets higher but Renault, thanks to their skills in electric technologies, remains more than ever, the leader of the Formula E championship. We will be back next season to fight hard, to retain our title and to try to win both titles again.”
